A Fun Friday for Mom in 2nd Grade!!

With Sunday being James' 8th birthday, I contacted his teacher, Mrs. Swihart, and asked her if I could bring cupcakes and drinks in for a little celebration today. She was happy to have me come and even invited me to come for the hour that they study math! It was fun to join James at school for awhile! Here are a few pictures from the day......
